- This latest acquisition follows a Feb 2018 integration between the two companies bringing together BCM capabilities and IRM workflow with rapid time to value
- Strategic BCP ResilienceONE customers will have access to SAI Global's world-wide sales and support footprint across 56 countries.
CHICAGO, Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SAI Global, a leading provider of Integrated Risk Management solutions, today announced that it has deepened its commitment to IRM with the recent acquisition of Strategic BCP ResilienceONE.
In today's environment, faced with increasing risks emerging from cyberattacks, physical disasters and regulations such as the EU GDPR, executives are realizing that more focus on business impact assessments and the appropriate response in the face of a crisis must be integrated to their operational risk management programs. Companies must be able to effectively understand, diagnose and remedy business risk.
"With this latest acquisition, we are now able to help companies respond to risks – cyber-attack, geo-political unrest, social media crisis – and to operate and manage policies, controls and eLearning to assure a go forward plan that advances corporate strategy," said Peter Granat, SAI Global CEO. "We are on a journey with our customers and I am pleased that the joining together of SAI Global with a four-time Gartner MQ leader* for BCM further extends our position."
"How does an organization maintain its resilience, protect brand and reputation without understanding business disruption risk, where those risks are connected?" said Frank Perlmutter, President and founder, Strategic BCP. "SAI Global has the vision to lead IRM and, with the addition of Strategic BCP ResilienceONE, we now have an integrated, leading approach for both our customers and the industry that executives can rely on to mitigate risks and look to opportunities for growth."
An established partner, the existing integration between SAI Global and Strategic BCP ResilienceONE incorporates IRM with BCM for improved resiliency and faster recovery.
Both companies share numerous common unique attributes such as rapid implementation, out-of-the-box deployments instead of lengthy software engineering projects, a large portfolio of global clients, and a concentration of clients in highly regulated industries.
* Strategic BCP ResilienceONE was most recently recognized as a Leader in the 2017 Magic Quadrant for Business Continuity Management Program Solutions, Worldwide.
